Aid: Understanding International Development Cooperation
Zed Books, Aug 2, 2003 - Business & Economics - 352 pages
In this comprehensive study on global aid, the authors argue that no better alternative exists to replace taxpayer-financed aid as the main mechanism for promoting greater equality between North and South and within the countries of the South. It should therefore be continued while at the same time being made more effective and efficient, and the authors present ideas to achieve this. They conclude by examining new modes of financing development and new modes of international cooperation aimed at bringing about growth and human development.
